Nilisan na ng K-pop star na si Sandara Park ang YG Entertainment, ang kanyang kinabilangang talent agency sa nakalipas na 17 years.
Ang YG Entertainment ay ang music and talent company na s’ya ring nagha-handle sa career ng mga Korean superstars gaya ni Lee Sung-kyung (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo, 2016), and singing group gaya ng Big Bang (composed of G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, and Daesung), Blackpink (Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa), at marami pang iba.
Sa inilabas na statement ng Korean talent agency nitong May 14, sinabi nilang nag-expire na ang exclusive contract ni Sandara sa kanila at pinasalamatan nila ang singer-actress sa tiwala at pagmamahal.
Sandara joined YG in 2004 na naging dahilan kaya nabuo ang K-pop girl group na 2NE1 noong 2009.
Dito ay nakasama n'ya sina Park Bom, CL, at Minzy. Pinasikat nila ang mga hit K-pop songs na “Fire,” “Come Back Home,” “I Am The Best,” at marami pang iba. However, na-disband ang 2NE1 noong 2016.
At kahapon nga, May 17, sa 12th debut anniversary ng 2NE1, nag-post sa Instagram si Dara para ipaalam sa kanyang mga fans na umalis na nga s’ya sa YG na tinawag n’yang kanyang tahanan.
“It is with a heavy heart that I leave YG, which has been my family, my caregiver, my home, my rock, and my everything since I came to Korea with no family or friends in 2004 to take on new challenges,” panimula n’ya sa kanyang post.
Sa tagal daw ng kanyang pamamalagi sa talent agency ay naging pamilya na n’ya ang mga nakatrabaho n’ya dito.
“I fell in love with the hip seniors here and grew along with the company for 17 years with the belief that I could become not only a colleague but also a real family member of the YG ‘family,’” lahad ng former Kapamilya star.
“Those years have been like a dream, filled with immeasurable memories and stage performances with my crew that blew people away.”
Pagre-recall pa ng Korean star, hindi naging madali para sa kanya nang ma-disband ang 2NE1 noong 2016 pero naging opportunity daw ‘yon para sa kanya na mag-explore sa kung ano pa ang kaya n’yang gawin.
“When 2NE1 broke up, it felt like everything was falling apart,” pagbabaliktanaw ni Sandara.
“Then for the next five years, I challenged myself in various genres with the mindset that I was starting all over again! Looking back, those 5 years became a great asset to me and gifted me with the positive image I have now,” pagpapatuloy ng 36-year-old K-pop singer.
“My heart’s greatest desire has always been being on stage. Showing that part of me is my way of repaying the love and support of my Blackjacks who have shown me undying love and also unfaltering dream I’ve had since I was in second grade.”
(Blackjacks ang tawag sa grupo ng kanilang mga fans.)
Excited daw si Sandara sa panibagong yugto na ito ng kanyang buhay.
“It is with excitement that I look ahead to the next act in my life could be my biggest challenge yet as I leave my nest,” aniya.
“My priorities are people, affection, and time spent together. Goodbyes are always the hardest to do but I take a deep breath and take a big step closer to my dream and the people who have stood by me, waiting for me to take that step.”
Nami-miss na din daw n’ya ang kanyang bandmates at umaasang magkikita-kita rin sila soon.
“Lastly, I send my love to my 2NE1 members who I miss madly and love dearly. I hope to keep seeing you pursue diverse activities and pray that we will be together as one in person or together in spirit someday.
“Happy 12th anniversarry, 2NE1!!!” pagtatapos ni Sandara.
